Bittorrent speeds vary enormously - some download pretty quickly but a few I've tried have either never got started at all or have ground to a halt part way through. You're really reliant on how many are seeding the show at any one time. I will use bittorrent now and then but on the whole I prefer it if I can just do a straight download from a server.

Yes, me too....but I've heard some swear there's a noticeble diff. in quality w/torrents...I was more excited about the fact that it's a Miller upgrade, which have never let me down before.

This supposed difference in quality has to be one of those internet myths doesn't it? If you end up with the exact same digital file how can it possibly make any difference how it got on to your computer, whether it was torrent, download or burned to a disc someone sent you in the mail? Beats me anyway.
